Survey finds more prejudice toward American Indians
(2007-10-03)
(KOSU) - A survey of racism by a former University of Tulsa professor and a TU student has found Indians are the most
likely to be regarded with prejudice by white students.
The study found that Indians are viewed less positively than blacks in part because of perceived privileges such as free health care.
The survey was of 55 white, middle-class college students in their 20s who had been in college for more than a year.
Researchers say the results are surprising because college students are perceived as liberal on race issues.
Former TU associate psychology professor Dennis Combs conducted the study with student Melissa Tibbits.
